assignment Spoiler Alert: A's Beat Falcons
Sunday 6:30PM July 10th, 2022The A’s (*shakes fist*) continued their perfect record against the Falcons with a 23-9 drubbing in the nightcap of the Pizza Night by Pizzaco Sunday doubleheader.
About the only thing in this game that hadn’t already been happening in previous A’s-Falcons match ups was that no A’s were wearing the short-lived Kelly Green Tranquility jersey. ‘Twas only camo and black on the field.
The game was competitive until the end of the first inning. The A’s scored 5 in the top of the first, going up +2 in home runs in the process. The Falcons responded well, giving back a home run but scoring four in the process to get to within one.
The A’s wasted no time going back up +2, as Travis hit his second of the game in the second inning. This paid dividends to the Falcons almost immediately when Thomas hit one over the fence four batters later for an out. It wasn’t a huge win for the Falcons because the A’s scored six anyway. The Falcons responded by scoring (checks notes)... TWO runs over the next 4 innings. That, friends, is not a recipe for success.
The big news of this game was that Dunner went 0-for-4. Why is that big? Because entering the game, he was on a 157-game on-base streak. That’s a LOT! His last 0-fer prior to Sunday was September 8, 2013. Pour one out for a commendable achievement!
Game notes: See WMSPL rule #25... With the demise of Dunner’s decade-plus long on-base streak, the current leaders are Goliath and (hold on to your butts) SLF at 62 straight games… In other streak news, the countdown is very much on to celebrate Million Dollar Bill’s breaking of Murph’s 160-consecutive-game attendance streak in game one of the Falcons’ doubleheader on August 7 against Storm.
